Scientific Program

The goal of the meeting is to work on the measurement and interpretation of galaxy-galaxy lensing + w(theta) with the focus on applying one simple method, Yoo-Seljak’s Method 1, to the BCC catalog. So we expect nearly all the work and discussions to be on this goal. The two sessions that are exceptions to this are: on Day 1, session 3 we will discuss other methods of combining the two probes to get cosmology, primarily via halo model parameters. And on Day 2, session 3 we will (i) overview different approaches taken by various DES teams and (ii) discuss whether to tackle SV data.
